KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) vice president Datuk Huan Cheng Guan today lambasted Transparency International president Jose Ugaz over his comments about corruption in Malaysia.
Huan said the Peruvian could do well to address the level of corruption in his own country before putting down Malaysia as he did in his speech at the International Anti Corruption Conference in Putrajaya yesterday.
"As the president of Transparency International, he should have all the facts at his fingers before behaving so rudely," said Huan.
"His own country, Peru, has declined in the corruption perceptions index (CPI), from 80th to 85th between 2011 and 2014, while Malaysia has improved from 60th to 50th.
"This is an index rated and published by Transparency International, of which Ugaz is president." Huan said by raising the 1MDB scandal and calling for the government to explain the RM2.6 billion alleged to have been deposited into Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's personal account, while also showing support for street demonstrations against the government, Ugaz had not been impartial.
"Even if you want to show support for the opposition in this country by using that platform, you should be aware of the details and be well informed," said Huan.
"He has been rude and tried to shame Malaysia, while the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) were hosting him.
"As such, I think the organiser should seriously look into who they invite to speak at such conferences in the future, not one like Ugaz who has failed to do anything about corruption in his own country, but then comes and tries to shame us."
